WWE Commentator Mauro Ranallo Reportedly in “Rough Shape”



During NXT Takeover: WarGames this past weekend, Mauro Ranallo was as enthusiastic as ever when commentating on the show alongside WWE Hall of Famer Beth Phoenix and former Ring of Honor star Nigel McGuiness.

There was a Tweet sent out by Corey Graves‘s account that basically accused Ranallo from hogging the spotlight.

He said, “Just for the record guys. I know you wouldn’t know it, but there’s actually a WWE Hall of Famer AND a former Ring of Honor Champion on commentary. I’d imagine they have a lot to offer.”

This was thought to have been Graves starting to stir up some controversy ahead of Survivor Series since NXT was facing Raw and SmackDown for the first time on the show and Ranallo was expected to be part of it.

Ranallo wasn’t at Survivor Series and has since deleted both his Twitter and Instagram accounts. The former main roster commentator was supposed to be on NXT last night as well, but he wasn’t part of the show and was instead replaced by Tom Phillips.

Graves has apologized for the Tweet since on After The Bell where he stated:

“On a personal note, I need to address something. This past Saturday during the TakeOver: WarGames event I sent out a tweet. It was an unpopular opinion, as I often do with the intention of just stirring up a little controversy. Maybe to have something fun to talk about on TV or here on the show. It was maybe not the most professional way to go about things, and it was never meant to offend or disrespect or disparage anybody. That was never my intention. If it was taken as such, I apologize deeply. That was not my intention. I would never intentionally cause anybody any undue stress, especially a co-worker. So, I apologize.”

Despite the apology, according to The Wrestling Observer, Ranallo is in “rough shape” and may not be returning to NXT screens next week.

“He’s in rough shape. That’s basically it. I think everyone kind of knows what the situation is. It was pretty bad the last couple of days. So…its a day by day thing. There’s no way of knowing what’s gonna happen next. We’ve spoken a lot about it, and it’s probably worse than we said.”
